Search and Selection
Search and Selection is at the heart of Moon Executive Search’s service, using dedicated search consultants and researchers to confidentially target individual candidates for your vacancy. In-house researchers can identify and approach a pre-approved list of candidates from tailored sectors and businesses to find the right candidates to match your business needs. Moon Exec Search will also target candidates who are not actively registered in the job market.

Advertising Your Campaign
Advertising your recruitment campaign in national media, trade publications and digital channels can dramatically improve visibility and response rates for your vacancy.

Moon Exec Search can manage your advertising by writing high-quality branded, or anonymous, copy and promoting through our carefully selected print and digital media partners. We work closely with you to determine the copy, costs and recommended media channels that result in maximum response rates for your vacancy.

Behavioural Profiling
Moon understand that cultural fit is just as important as knowledge and skills when hiring a board-level candidate. As such, they can provide Behavioural Profiling for your final short list to ensure candidate behaviours and attitudes align to your company culture.

Moon Exec Search deliver and evaluate psychometric behavioural profiling tests through the Drake P3 system. Candidates complete a profile that covers their behaviours and attitudes, along with how these changes when they are at work. Moon then match the candidates to the job profile and provide sample interview questions to cover behaviour issues.

Professional Development
Investing in the skills of your team is essential to securing competitive advantage. Moon Executive Search offer a range of bespoke developmental workshops for both candidates and clients.

Their development sessions can be delivered on a 1-2-1 basis or in group workshops. These include: CV Writing support, Interview skills, Career counselling clinics, Out-placement support, Networking skills, Executive Coaching and Understanding the job market.
